It is important that HS2 Ltd has the space to discuss robustly and frankly the HS2 programme. HS2 Ltd publishes the minutes of the Audit and Risk Assurance Committee (and the minutes of the HS2 Board) to provide transparency around the decision-making process while maintaining necessary levels of confidentiality to allow frank and robust discussion. Representatives from the National Audit Office attend HS2’s Audit and Risk Assurance Committee. It is chaired by a Non-Executive Director of the HS2 Board.
